When Stumbling on Something Awesome, Roll With It

I'm a big believer in schedules and priorities, but occasionally I come across something that's really amazing. At this point, I engage in the amazing thing without beating myself up or feeling guilty over it.

Today I found "Learn Writing With Uncle Jim," an amazing forum thread on writing. It's written by James McDonald, and he's got a sharp, clear thinking way about him.

I'm shifting everything else back a little bit, because it's such good stuff. It's about writing fiction, which I don't do, but he's such a clear thinker that it's enjoyable and worth reading anyways. Highly recommended. Also recommended: Embrace it when you find something that's worth massively a lot even if it's not on your to-do list. The to-do list exists to serve you, you don't serve it.

Buy Sam a Beer!

Congrats to my brother Sam, Nick, Michael and the entire FreshPlum team for their article in TechCrunch today about Helium, a new product from FreshPlum that allows anyone to add a shopping cart to their site with an easy, one-line-of-javascript implementation.

In fact, if you'd like to experience just how easy it is, you can buy Sam a beer to see how he's integrated Helium into his personal blog.

PS Sam, you owe me a beer. :)
